The purple angel light ray represents mercy and transformation. This ray is part of the metaphysical system of angel colors based on seven different light rays: Some people believe that the light waves for the seven angel colors, blue, yellow, pink, white, green, red, and purple, vibrate at different electromagnetic energy frequencies and attract the angels that have similar kinds of energy.

From another viewpoint, the colors can be thought of as symbols of the different types of missions God give to angels to help people. This allows you to focus your prayers according to what type of help you are seeking.

Purple Light Ray and Archangel Zadkiel

Zadkiel, the archangel of mercy, is in charge of the purple light ray. Zadkiel helps people approach God for mercy when they've done something wrong, encouraging them that God cares and will be merciful to them when they confess and repent of their sins, and motivating them to pray. Just as Zadkiel encourages people to seek the forgiveness that God offers them, he also encourages people to forgive others who have hurt them and helps deliver divine power that people can tap into to enable them to choose forgiveness, despite their hurt feelings. Zadkiel helps heal emotional wounds by comforting people and healing their painful memories. He helps repair broken relationships by motivating estranged people to show mercy to each other.


Some of the different crystal gemstones associated with the purple light ray are carnelian, sunstone, and moonstone. Some people believe that the energy in these crystals can help people express their creative ideas, work for positive change, and develop more self-confidence.


The purple angel light ray corresponds to the sacral chakra, which is located in the lower abdomen of the human body. Some people say that the spiritual energy from angels that flows into the body through the sacral chakra may help them physically (such as by helping to treat reproductive problems, urinary conditions, digestive problems, and health issues related to areas of the body like the spleen, gallbladder, pelvis, lower back, and pancreas), mentally (such as by managing emotions well and thinking creatively), and spiritually (such as by learning how to let go of trying to control their own lives and trusting God to guide them, and choosing right over wrong when making decisions).


The purple angel light ray radiates most powerfully on Saturday, some people believe, so they consider Saturday to be the best day of the week to pray especially about situations that the purple ray encompasses.

Life Situations in the Purple Ray

When praying in the purple ray, you can ask God to send Archangel Zadkiel and the angels who work with him to help you discover and embrace more of God's mercy in your life, which will empower you to change for the better. Confess and repent of your sins, and then accept the merciful forgiveness and grace to move forward that God offers you.

God may send archangel Zadkiel and the other white ray angels to help you envision what your life could become like once you make the changes God wants you to make. Pray for guidance in every part of your life, from your relationships to your work.

God may also send purple ray angels to deliver the wisdom and strength you need to follow through on the specific changes God calls you to make in the various areas of your life.

Praying in the purple ray may also help you relate to other people with mercy, relying on power that God may send you through his angels to forgive them when they hurt or offend you and love them despite their weaknesses, difficult behaviors, or irritating quirks.

Purple ray angels may also come on missions to deliver peace and joy to you when you've successfully made changes God has called you to make.
